Chapter 4: Eyes closed, hearts open
I didnt say anything. I couldnt say anything. What did they mean I was blind? I sat up in my bed and put my hand in front of my face. All I saw was blackness. I waved my hand around and began to panic. It was true, I really was blind. I couldnt see anything at all. I reached my hand out to the right and felt some one grab it. It was Bridgette. I some how recognized the feel of her hand from the first time we shook hands on the day we came to this cursed island.
What does it look like? I whispered.
Bridgette took a deep shaky breath. I-Im not really sure your eyes are just so pale and bright. Like a white blue kind of color. I could feel her trembling.
What happened? I can barely remember anything.
Allow me to explain, Chris said. He quickly told me everything about how he had comforted me when I ran away from Duncan, and how I hurt my head so badly I went blind. I could feel the tears gathering in my eyes by the time he finished. I let go of my friends hand and used it to wipe away the unshed tears before they fell.
